Dublin Airport incident Thursday Morning!

A complete idiot was late for his Ryanair flight to Amsterdam, and managed to make it outside on the the taxi way, and ran to the plane!

https://www.bbc.com/news/world-europe-45663321

How he thought this action would allow him to board is beyond me!

How did he even get out there after the boarding gate was shut?

Cheek of Ryanair. Could they not let him finish his few pre-breakfast pints before closing the door?

He's bloody lucky he only got arrested. If he tried that in the US he'd probably have gotten shot.



Did he think he was flagging down a bus?

Less than a year since someone tried this in Madrid also - https://www.joe.ie/news/watch-shocki...g-plane-556040

Exit doors have to be emergency activatable in case of an actual emergency; I'd presume this is how the idiots got out in both cases.

How did he get on the Tarmac in the first place? Do our Airport POlice have power of arrest, or is it just to detain. We really do need an Armed Pressence Transport Police/Garda Unit. Could have just as easily been a terrorist.

One wonders what additional privations will be forced upon us in response to this incident. The self absorption of some idiots is really astounding. Chasing a plane onto the tarmac is the ultimate in lack of self awareness of surroundings or situation.
